Biography

I live in West Sussex where I grew up with the South Downs on one side and the English Channel on the other. This gave me an appreciation of panoramic views and atmospheric seascapes. My interest is focused on conveying the atmosphere of a location rather than the location itself. I am particularly inspired by the Sussex landscape as well as the more rugged coastlines of North Cornwall, Devon and Pembrokeshire.

I studied at Worthing Art College and then at Exeter University to gain a BA (Hons) in Fine Art, specialising in ceramic murals. I regularly undertake commissions in diverse media including large mural work and sell my paintings and ceramics. I am the President of the Downland Art Society. I regularly exhibit with the Adur Art Collective and the Worthing Open Houses.  I recently exhibited my Landscape of Colour collection as part of“Compared to What” at the Made Gallery in Brighton. I teach adult education multi-media art classes at local venues, as well as give demonstrations, run workshops and critique work.
